Wahl Lapis Blue Gold Seal with “Flexible” Nib – Good Flex
I’ve had a run on these beautiful Wahl’s in Lapis blue, but sadly this is the last one I’ve got in stock. This is a vest size pen. The body is in nice condition with some very minor surface scratching from normal use. The color is great throughout including the black at the ends. The gold-filled trim is in overall nice condition. There is just a touch of brassing on the lever, but otherwise it all looks really nice. The cap does post securely, but it can strangely rotate on the back of the pen. The feed has the Eversharp ink stopping feature, though in my experience these aren’t terribly effective. The 14kt. Eversharp “Flexible” nib is a lovely, buttery smooth writing F (0.4mm). It has a good range of flex going to 1.4mm (BB). However, it lacks some the responsiveness of a “super flex” and it is just a bit too stiff. Still, this is a lovely pen in fantastic condition.

How To Buy
Typically, I sell my pens on Ebay, however, occasionally I acquire pens that are just too valuable to sell in that format. Some may eventually find their way to Ebay. Some will not. I do my best to come up with a fair price, but pricing vintage pens is very difficult. If you are interested in buying one of these pens simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will send you a Paypal invoice, at which time you have 2 days to pay. Shipping is $5.95 within the U.S. I charge my cost for international shipping, and I generally give the buyer his/ her choice of options. Pens will ship within 2 business days of payment. My normal refund policy applies. If you feel I have not described the pen well or are unhappy with my restoration work, you may return for full refund. Buyer pays return shipping.
